Manuel Oliver, the father of 17-year-old Joaquin who was killed during the Parkland shooting in 2018 interrupted Joe Biden’s speech on gun legislation that was recently passed.
It is unclear at this time what was said.
President Biden was heckled on the White House lawn Monday by gun control advocate Manuel Oliver, whose 17-year-old son Joaquin was killed in a 2018 mass shooting at a high school in Parkland, Fla.
“Sit down! You’ll hear what I have to say,” Biden said as Oliver shouted over him during a celebration of bipartisan gun policy legislation that Biden signed last month.
Oliver’s remarks weren’t clearly audible on pooled video feeds, but Biden pushed back and defended his record on gun control.
“We have one. Let me finish my comments,” Biden said to Oliver, before quickly adding, “Let him talk, let him talk.”
The president went on, “Make no mistake about it, this legislation is real progress, but more has to be done.”
